Panch Mahal

Recommended
The Panch Mahal (a five-storey palace), easily recognisable from a distance thanks to its tall triangular silhouette, separates the women's area from the men's. Its five hypostyle storeys decrease in size, each placed on top of the other like a pack of cards. The 176 sculpted columns are all said to be different. The building must once have been enclosed byjalis , which caught the breeze and transformed the area into an ideal place for sleeping on hot summer nights.
